Arithmetic with mixed numbers and unlike fractions can seem overwhelming to students, especially those who lack confidence in fraction conversions. Strengthen your lessons and give your students the help they need to understand this new concept with these resources that allow a student to work with peers or individually. Struggling students can get extra help with these equivalent fractions resources.
When denominators differ, upper-elementary students may need a little extra help and practice adding fractions. To helps students learn how to add fractions with different denominators, these worksheets and activities break the addition process down into step-by-step instructions. Worksheets with sample problems help students develop strategies for fractions with different denominators. Start by finding a common denominator with third graders, and then as students learn, you can introduce adding and subtracting mixed numbers that include fractions with different denominators. Sample problems walk through converting a mixed number to an improper fraction and then converting back to a mixed number. Real world problems, such as working with measuring cups, teach students how adding fractions with different denominators can help with everyday activities. Resources, including multiple worksheets for third to fifth graders, provide a variety of methods to teach adding fractions with different denominators. After addition, subtracting fractions should be easier for students.
